    V Stream Windshield fitment

    Has anyone had an issue with the black cover plates on the windshield not fitting flat against a V Stream windshield on the lower end below the bottom screw?  All I can figure is that years of having a Cal Sci mounted it may not have had as much curvature down low and caused the covers to deform so they don't fit the V Stream properly.  I tried heating them with a hair dryer and putting them under pressure to reconfigure them but that had zero effect.  Maybe not enough heat, but I don't want to completely ruin them either.  Any ideas?

    It is possible that you have to place some more rubber washer under where it has something more raised or as it says (deformed) with that you will get the screen to rise and mold to the side where it has more space or separation. I don't know if I explained well????

    Already tried that.  The very bottom end of the cover is about 3/16" (around 6mm) from contacting the screen.  Between the two screws it sits flush against the screen.

    That's really strange !

    I assume that the Screen sits perfectly OK on the Support arms when secured by the central bolt ?

    The only thing that I can suggest ( and please forgive me for this ) :
    Is there any chance that you have the two covers swapped over so the one
    for the left is on the right and vice versa, and both are upside down ?

    I'm only suggesting this because I just went in the garage and swapped the covers over
    on my standard Triumph Touring Screen, which does result in the very bottom edge
    standing off from the screen by a few millimetres, but ( to me ) is fairly obviously
    wrong, as the bottom section of the support arms can be seen through the screen ?

    I can't think what else it might be !

    Cheers my friend  :821:

    I had both the sport touring and the touring vstream windshields for my TTSE and swapped them periodically.  They always fit well with no problem with the covers.

    You might consider trying some adhesive backed neoprene tape, you can get it in various thicknesses down to 1mm. Alternatively, do you know anyone with an old wet suit or off cuts  :084:

    I can come over and take a look if you haven't figured it out.

    They match up to the support arms.  The only thing I can figure is that the Cal Sci is a flatter shape and  years of conforming to it is the problem, since they fit that shield perfectly.
